Ellen March teaches you step-by-step how to create a makeup brush holder with laminated cottons. The material can be sticky, so she introduces you to the walking foot and a teflon coated foot that will make your sewing process easier. You will learn tricks like using tape for pocket placement, gluing the velcro flap, and tying it in a bow.
